Abstract

‘COOL STREETS’ TO RETURN PUBLIC SPACE TO PEDESTRIANS AND RESIDENTS AND FOR CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION

“Cool Streets” is a heat adaptation measure. In three city areas, particularly affected by heat, fully shaded streets sections became car-free and were opened as recreational areas for residents for a limited period of time. The evaluation of the action shows high acceptance and manifold social effects.
